A Nation Divided

QUESTION: Marty, are you surprised at the Rittenhouse acquittal? Was this part of the anti-government or decline in confidence you have been forecasting?


ANSWER: Absolutely. Of course, Biden said he was angry. However, if he was a cop, in normal times there would have never been a case against him. With 70% of Americans believing that we are headed in the wrong direction, this is part of the collapse in confidence in government. Going into the American Revolution, there was a rise in discontent which was also about fundamental religious beliefs. William Penn was put on trial and despite what the King’s prosecutors thought was a sure-fire case, the jury acquitted him.

This is not unusual in times when people are coming to grips with a government they no longer trust. The nation was divided on this case BECAUSE they also saw the rioters as simply criminals. It seems those who wanted Rittenhouse found guilty claim this was racism. This trial divides the nation between left and right the same as we see in politics and it appears that this entire exploitation of race that has been deliberately unleashed in the country has achieved its goal – divide and conquer.


The crazy thing is there are protests calling this racist assuming the people he killed were black. In reality, the victims, in this case, are young White men: Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, were shot and killed by Rittenhouse, and Gaige Grosskreutz, 27, was wounded by the shooter. Rittenhouse has pleaded self-defense and his fate was decided by the jury. But there are protests calling this racist. The deliberate strategy to divide the country to enable the USA to be assimilated by a new socialist one-world government is in play. The propaganda is working.
